Going on the tear in Dublin will hit your pocket harder than in London, according to an international study into the average cost of a pint.

New research has found that Dublin is the world's tenth most expensive city for beer, with the average pint costing €5.95, 10pc more than in London.

The international study carried out by Deutsche Bank found that pints in Dublin cost the same as they do in typically expensive cities such as Copenhagen and Auckland.

While the cost of a pint in Dublin might make it hard to swallow, it is nothing compared to Oslo where a beer costs an average of €9.05. Dublin also fares better than New York, where a beer costs €6.77 on average, or in Singapore, where a pint will set you back €8.23.

However, San Francisco (€5.40) and Tokyo (€5.40) are cheaper cities than Dublin to go for a session.

The cost of a pint in Dublin is almost 80pc more than in Prague, where punters will find the cheapest pint in the world at €1.21.

The research is based on Expatistan, a website which calculates the cost of living in more than 200 countries.
